Alpha Testing Login

Postby MysteryMan » Tue Sep 18, 2012 10:11 am

We are working hard to get Alteil online. There are a lot of little parts involved, but some of the ones relevant for this topic are:
* Modifying the existing Alteil code to get it back online after the transfer
* Rewriting bits of code that were not provided to us
* Fixing known existing bugs
* Creating new functionality to make the game better
* Improving existing code for efficiency/etc

In the future, we plan on releasing an update to our public test environment once every three weeks. Items that passed testing will be brought to the live server.

For now, however, we plan on releasing a lot of small releases for instant feedback. Some of these may not be fully finished, some of these may be buggy - but the sooner we get them in front of your eyes the sooner we can get feedback and tests.

What's going on now?
The big bit that was not included with the server transfer was login and registration. We are making a new registration and login page, and we are trying to make it better than the old one.
Where is this test page?:
What can be tested?:
- Creating a new user
- Creating a new account with twitter, google, or facebook
- Linking your google, twitter, and facebook accounts to the game
What is not ready yet?
Importing your old Alteil account. That part should be ready tomorrow night.

How do I report a bug?
While we expect the test network to be online this weekend (which will have robust bug tracking and reporting functionality), you can start reporting bugs/feature requests for the login in this thread now.

Got no confirmation mail for registering.

Adding facebook page seems to work.

Some things that are good to know:

Since Gamepot removed it's GP account system, passwords have reverted to the pre-gamepot passwords. This should work fine. What Mysteryman meant by "importing" not working, he was talking about if your account didn't exist pre-gamepot, you'll have to reset your password with a few security questions. That's the part that is not quite finished yet.

You have to log in using your Iczer name, since it's you're only unique identifier (it's possible for some people who never converted to GP to have the same login name as someone else's GP Login).

If you're asked for your old login, it's likely case-sensitive.

Since the game server is not public yet, you can't go to MyIczer page to make sure you're account's all happy. Instead, go to Account Management, it will give you some basic details on your Iczer so you know you've got the right one.

I tried creating a new user account "rsvlito" I got the captcha wrong on purpose and the form generated a new captcha. I got the captcha right the second time and I got a message saying that the user was already in use. I tried to log in with my username and password I used to fill out the form and it worked.

I am not sure if its because the form posted and my account was generated on the server side, or if its because its the same username and password I used for my old account.

OS: Windows 7 x64 Ultimate
Browser: Chrome 21.0.1180.89 m

Checking my account information, I imported my old account successfully.

yep they work good thing i remember their old passwords, though the security question is very um LAXED that i thought it would be, but who cares, it works just hoped you fixed the lvl change, cause i was NOT lvl40 for both alt accounts. i was in the lvl20 range for kage, and in the 30s for kageX.

Security is designed to be as out of the user's face as possible, but there is some more checking going on behind the scenes.

Welp, it seems that I wasn't called Muklas afterall, as I can't get past the security question asking me for my old login name. So It'd be nice if you could PM it to me if at all possible, if not oh well, my own fault.

edit:false alarm, everything's in working order
